Asylum Magazine Seeks Submissions on Comics & Mental Health


Asylum, the “international magazine for democratic psychiatry,” is inviting 500-1000 word submissions for a special themed issue exploring “the intersections between mental health and other forms of identification and identity in comics, graphic novels and sequential art.” According to a post on the Disability Studies Network, among other topics, the editors are interested in “personal reflections on your own favourite comic depictions of mental health issues” and “reflections on comics which are not about mental health directly, but are concerned with relevant themes: alienation; difference; altered states; extremes of behaviour, breaking taboos, etc.”

Submissions should be emailed by September 30th, 2014 to the guest editors Meg John Barker, Caroline Walters, or Joseph De Lappe.
